Have you seen the September 1752 CALENDAR?

Isn't the output queer? a month with whole of eleven days missing. This was the time England shifted from Roman Julian Calendar to Gredorian Calendar, and the king of England ordered those 11 days to be wiped off the face of the month of September of 1752.
(What couldn't a king do in those days?!) and yes, the workers worked for 11 days less, but got paid for the entire 20 days, and thats how "Paid Leave" was born. Hail the King!!!!
